Gordon: age immaterial, long suffering stage manager (plays Jacob Marley & others)

Depending upon the number of auditionees, there are a few little roles that could be played by extra cast, although the nature of the script has all characters depicted by the four ladies in the group.   No preparation is necessary for auditioning.
